These days, it seems the term “Sephardi/Sephardic” simply refers to non-Ashkenazi Jews. However, since Greece, Balkans, and of course Spain and Portugal are a long way from Iran, Iraq, Egypt, it leaves me wondering: what are the differences between the first group and the latter one? How would practices differ between a Jew from Salonika (who presumably traces his roots to Spain) vs a Jew in Tehran?

- So I’m a teen and considering converting to Judaism when I become 18 and am in college. I was raised Catholic and disagree with Christianity. I’ve been reading a lot about Judaism and think it’s for me. I’m currently reading the Torah. I was just seeing if anyone could give me tips or anything?
